Best drama movie mistakes of 2017
Continuity mistake: When Pierce first begins to interrogate Caliban in the safe house in Mexico, a large portion of Caliban's albino makeup is smudged below his nose, revealing the actor's natural skin in his first close-up of the scene; after switching to a close-up of Pierce, then back to Caliban, the smudge has been fixed.
New this month Factual error: General Hoyt is shown as a five star General, and he makes reference to it. However, this rank did not exist in 1962. The last person to hold this rank was Omar Bradley in 1950.
Factual error: Before and during the Marines' arrival in Marjah, some of them are wearing Dust Goggles. These would've been first issued in World War II and continued into the early 2000s. The Battle for Marjah took place in 2010, by which point these goggles had been replaced by superior models such as ESS for some time.
Factual error: When Sgt. Harper and his men are prepping their gear for the water mission, he gives Pvt. Ocre one of his rifle plates. But the plate he gives him looks like a steel plate that been wrapped in plastic. In reality, the plates issued to Marines and Soldiers were and still are ceramic Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPI for short). The plate seen in the film looks nothing like the actual ones.
